  • Zobrist scratched from Cubs' lineup Tuesday
    Ben Zobrist has been scratched from the Cubs' starting lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Zobrist had trouble securing a rental car to drive from Nashville to Cincinnati, where the Cubs open a series against the Reds on Tuesday night. Ian Happ is now starting at second base and batting fifth versus right-hander Homer Bailey. Zobrist should be available off the bench once he arrives. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

  • Pedroia (knee) hit and ran on Tuesday
    Dustin Pedroia (knee) was able to do some light running on Tuesday.

    Advice: Running and agility drills represent the biggest hurdles for Pedroia, who has been sidelined since early August with inflammation in his left knee. He also took some swings on Tuesday.

  • O'Malley suffers concussion at AAA Tacoma
    Shawn O'Malley suffered a concussion on Monday at Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The head injury could delay his return to the major leagues, which was likely to come September 1 after the expansion of MLB rosters. O'Malley was placed on the disabled list just before Opening Day following an emergency appendectomy and then suffered a serious shoulder injury in April. The 29-year-old infielder has been limited to 31 minor league games in 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:54 pm

  • Panik (concussion) to begin rehab stint

    Advice: Panik came down with post-concussion symptoms after he took a hard tag to the head last Sunday, but he's ready to return to game action. Assuming all goes well, it shouldn't be long before he rejoins the Giants. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:54 am

  • Trea Turner (wrist) beings rehab assignment
    Trea Turner (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Turner also played five innings at shortstop in his first game action since late June. The dynamic shortstop will likely need a few more rehab games as he works his way back from a fractured right wrist. He could be a difference-maker down the stretch in fantasy leagues.

  • Walker has single, walk against GIants
    Neil Walker went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday’s shutout loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The Brewers managed just four hits on the day, all of them singles. Walker has been red-hot since being acquired from the Mets earlier this month, batting .435 (10-for-23) over seven games. Recently hitting second in the Brewers’ lineup, Walker should be owned in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Dozier hits three-run homer vs. White Sox
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in the second game of Monday’s doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: Dozier went 4-for-8 on the day. He has four homers over his last nine games and has been piling up walks in bunches recently. He now owns a healthy .264/.348/.487 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Polanco slugs three-run HR vs. ChiSox
    Jorge Polanco slugged a three-run homer as the Twins split Monday’s doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: Polanco entered Monday’s action with three homers through his first 94 games this season, so of course he connected for three-run homers in both games of the doubleheader. The 24-year-old is now riding a modest six-game hitting streak. He’s batting .245/.294/.363 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:08 pm

  • Josh Harrison goes 3-for-5 with home run
    Josh Harrison finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Pirates' loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Harrison did his part, swatting a solo shot in the bottom of the third inning off Dodgers starter Alex Wood and a run-scoring two-bagger in the bottom of the eighth against Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez. Harrison was the only Pirates batter to register multiple hits in the 12-inning affair at PNC Park. The 30-year-old utilityman has a cool .281/.349/.440 slash line with 15 home runs, 44 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 62 runs scored in 118 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 pm

  • Albies has two-run triple vs. Mariners
    Ozzie Albies went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple and two runs scored Monday versus the Mariners.

    Advice: The triple got the Braves back into things in the bottom of the sixth inning, but their rally ultimately fell short. Albies is hitting just .224 with a .274 on-base percentage through his first 19 games in the majors, but he has three multi-hit games in his last five. He also has three triples in that timespan.

  • Schoop belts three-run homer as O's top A's
    Jonathan Schoop belted a three-run homer Monday in the Orioles' defeat of the Athletics.

    Advice: The three-run shot off A's starter Chris Smith gave Baltimore a 5-1 advantage in the bottom of the fifth inning. Schoop also had a big showing in Sunday's series finale against the Angels and he now boasts a .302/.351/.538 slash line with 27 home runs and 91 RBI over 123 total games this season.

  • Yolmer Sanchez drives in four runs vs. MIN
    Yolmer Sanchez hit a three-run homer and tallied four total RBI as the White Sox topped the Twins 7-6 in the first half of Monday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Sanchez went deep off Twins starter Tim Melville in the bottom of the fourth inning and he drove in Nicky Delmonico on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The 25-year-old utility infielder is still batting just .251/.305/.374 with six home runs and 38 RBI in 104 total games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:05 pm

  • Dozier finishes 2-for-4 with double, SB, run
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Twins' loss to the White Sox on Monday evening.

    Advice: Dozier scored the first run of the split doubleheader after drawing a leadoff walk in the top of the first inning. He then singled in the top of the seventh and doubled in the top of the eighth, but Minnesota ultimately fell 7-6 in the early game at Guaranteed Rate Field. Dozier is enjoying an excellent August and has lifted his season OPS to .826. The 30-year-old second baseman has 25 home runs, 23 doubles, 68 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 70 runs scored in 116 total games played. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 pm
  • Jorge Polanco hits three-run homer in loss
    Jorge Polanco hit a three-run homer, drew a walk, and scored two runs but the Twins fell to the White Sox in the first half of Monday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Polanco scored on a sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh and brought the Twins to within one run with his three-run shot in the top of the eighth, but that is where the offense ended for Minnesota. Polanco, 24, is batting .245/.294/.356 with four home runs, 44 RBI, and 40 runs scored in 95 games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:52 pm

  • Urias homers
    Padres prospect Luis Urias homered on Sunday for Double-A El Paso.

    Advice: That homer gives Urias three on the season. Power is not a big part of Urias's game, but it doesn't have to be for him to be fantasy relevant. He has one of the best projected hit tools in all of baseball. He's spending just as much time at second as he is at shortstop right now, and while he'd be more valuable on the third-base side of the bag, he's an everyday player either way.

  • Kingery picks up three hits, homers.
    Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 3-for-4 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The homer is the eighth since Kingery was promoted to Triple-A, and his 26th overall. This was the 48th pick in the 2015 draft, so it's not like this came completely out of nowhere. Having said that, no one could have seen him becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. With the Phillies destined for a two-two pick, there's no reason to not see what Kingery can do at the highest level. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 am

  • Gyorko blasts two-run homer in loss on Sunday
    Jedd Gyorko blasted a two-run homer as the Cardinals fell to the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

    Advice: Gyorko's two-run shot off of Ivan Nova pulled the Cardinals to within a run at 3-2 in the second inning. He also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. The 28-year-old is enjoying another solid season offensively, slashing .269/.336/.464 with 17 homers and 59 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:08 pm

  • Wilmer Difo doubles twice in win on Sunday
    Wilmer Difo went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles as the Nationals topped the Padres on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Difo has done an admirable job filling in for the injured Trea Turner, slashing .279/.340/.385 with four homers, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 254 plate appearances. His days of fantasy relevancy could be coming to an end soon though with Turner beginning a minor league rehab assignment on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:23 pm

  • Tyler Saladino leads White Sox past Rangers
    Tyler Saladino delivered a two-run double in the fourth inning on Sunday, helping to lead the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: The White Sox finally broke through against A.J. Griffin with Omar Narvaez's RBI single in the fourth inning, and Saladino piled on with a two-run double. The light-hitting infielder finished the day 1-for-4 and is hitting just .196/.276/.259 with eight RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:32 pm

  • Marwin Gonzalez slugs his 21st home run
    Marwin Gonzalez hit his 21st home run of the season on Sunday afternoon against the A's.

    Advice: It was a solo blast in the bottom of the seventh inning against A's starter Jharel Cotton, but the Astros were held off the board from there in the eventual 3-2 loss. Gonzalez has an excellent .307/.382/.554 batting line through 103 games this season with first-place Houston. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:43 pm

  • Trea Turner (wrist) set for rehab assignment
    Trea Turner (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab games Turner will need, but he's missed nearly two months of action so he'll need to knock some rust off. Still, a return before the end of the month, or perhaps even before the end of the week, would seem to be doable. Turner still ranks as the No. 4 shortstop in fantasy this season even after all the missed time. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:55 am

  • Mariners release veteran INF Danny Espinosa
    Mariners released INF Danny Espinosa.

    Advice: The M's signed Espinosa last month after he was cut loose by the Angels, but he played very little the last few weeks and continued to be a zero with the bat. Espinosa can still pick it with the glove but sports an embarrassing .164/.237/.279 batting line this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:23 am

  • Phillips has three hits, homer against Reds
    Brandon Phillips went 3-for-6 with a home run in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: Phillips punished his old team with a solo blast in the third inning, his 11th homer of the year. He also notched a pair of singles in the game. The 36-year-old hasn't missed a beat offensively since moving to the hot corner on defense, and through Saturday Phillips is hitting .287/.327/.431 on the year. He'll be a free agent after this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 pm

  • Spangenberg picks up pair of hits in victory
    Cory Spangenberg went 2-for-3 in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Spangenberg collected a pair of singles in what was a quiet offensive game by both teams. The third baseman owns a .278/.331/.434 triple-slash with 12 homers and 43 RBI over the course of 334 at-bats. He has posted five multi-hit showings in his last eight games.

  • Dozier goes 2-for-3 with a run and RBI Sat.
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run and an RBI in Saturday's defeat of the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He drove in a run by poking an infield single in the fourth inning, then came around to score on a Joe Mauer single. The second baseman isn't going to repeat last year's 42 home runs but he is having a quality season nonetheless. He has a .259 batting average with 24 home runs, 67 RBI, 66 runs and 11 stolen bases in 113 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:23 pm
  • Gonzalez plates two with well-placed single
    Marwin Gonzalez hit a two-run single in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Gonzalez pulled a ground ball to the right side in the fourth inning, glancing off the second baseman's glove and into right field to score two. It was his only hit in three at-bats. It's been a heck of a breakout year for the 28-year-old, who ranks among the league leaders in batting average (.308), slugging percentage (.548) and OPS (.932) while setting career highs in basically every statistical category.

  • Gosselin called up to replace Carlos Gomez
    Rangers recalled INF/OF Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gosselin was called up to replace Carlos Gomez, who is out with a shoulder injury. Claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh earlier this month, the 28-year-old has managed just six hits in 40 big league at-bats this season. He'll be used in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:53 pm
  • Dozier homers in win over Diamondbacks
    Brian Dozier slugged a solo homer Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Dozier went 1-for-4 with a walk on the night. Max Kepler, Miguel Sano, Eduardo Escobar, and Byron Buxton also homered in the Twins’ victory. After hitting 13 homers in the first half, Dozier is already up to 11 home runs since the All-Star break. He’s up to his old tricks once again. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:20 pm
  • Phillips goes 2-for-5 and scores a run Fri.
    Brandon Phillips had a nice night versus his former squad, going 2-for-5 with a run scored against the Reds on Friday.

The multiple Gold Glove winner has been moved from second base to third base to make room for rookie Ozzie Albies. He has a .284 batting average with 10 home runs, 45 RBI, 61 runs and nine stolen bases in 110 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:16 pm

  • Moncada hits third homer in loss to Rangers
    Yoan Moncada hit his third home run of the season and scored twice in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Moncada tomahawked a ball that looked like it might curve foul, keeping it just inside the right field foul pole for his third dinger of the year. He also walked twice in the loss. The learning curve is steep for the 22-year-old, who's hitting .190/.333/.357 in 25 big league games, but the Sox have all the time in the world to develop their budding star.

  • Harrison has big night in loss to Cardinals
    Josh Harrison went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs scored in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

    Advice: Harrison was able to get just enough of an Adam Wainwright offering, pulling it over the left field wall for a two-run clout in the first inning. The homer was his 13th of the year but just his third since the All-Star break. His production since the break aside, Harrison has been fairly useful for fantasy owners this year, batting .278/.349/.425 with 13 homers and 12 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:01 pm

He added a pair of singles for a rare three-hit night, something he's done just twice since June 21. He's having a fine year all around after settling in as the team's starter at the hot corner, batting .273/.342/.464 with his 16 homers, 57 RBI, 46 runs scored and six steals.

  • Jose Peraza knocks in three
    Jose Peraza went 2-for-5 with three RBI, a walk and a steal against the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: A steal! A steal!!! Peraza had 15 in 68 games through June 20, but he was 0-for-2 in 44 games since. He is hitting quite well at the moment -- he's batting .377 with more walks (eight) than strikeouts (seven) in 53 at-bats over his last 18 appearances -- but for fantasy purposes, it's going to be mostly about the steals with him.

  • Jonathan Schoop smokes his 26th homer
    Jonathan Schoop managed just one hit across three at-bats Tuesday in Seattle, but it was good for a solo home run.

    Advice: The All-Star has hit safely in each of his past five and 10 of the past 11 outings. His power number are down in August, as he has managed just two homers and nine RBI after rolling up nine bombs and 28 RBI in July. Still, despite the rough patch, he remains a must-start fantasy option through thick and thin. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:07 am
  • Ben Zobrist (neck) delivers pinch-hit RBI
    Ben Zobrist (neck) drove in the Cubs' lone run in Tuesday's loss to the Reds with a pinch-hit single.

    Advice: Zobrist was held out of the lineup again with a stiff neck, but he contributed off the bench with a screamer in front of right fielder Jesse Winker to plate Kyle Schwarber with one out in the ninth inning. Unfortunately for the Cubs, they stranded the tying and go-head runs on base. Zobrist would seem to have a good chance to be back in the lineup Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 pm

  • Josh Harrison goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Josh Harrison finished 0-for-4 in the 3-1 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Harrison, a member of the NL All-Star team, is hitting just .231/.275/.328 in 134 at-bats since the beginning of July. He might have been in line to lose some playing time to Adam Frazier if not for Gregory Polanco's latest injury. As is, Frazier can play the outfield, meaning that Harrison's spot should be secure.

  • Cory Spangenberg goes 3-for-3, homers
    Cory Spangenberg went 3-for-3 with a homer, a walk, a steal and three runs scored as the Padres topped the Phillies 7-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Spangenberg belongs in a utility role, but the Padres have been treating him as their everyday third baseman these last two months. He is hitting pretty well, with three homers the last two days taking his OPS from .715 to .760, but his defense is mediocre and his 90/24 K/BB ratio in 346 plate appearances wouldn't seem to bode well.

  • Concussion DL possible for Joe Panik
    Giants general manager Bobby Evans on Monday wouldn't rule out placing Joe Panik on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Panik passed concussion tests for the second straight day Monday after being hit in the head with a hard tag Sunday. However, he's expected to at least miss a second straight start Tuesday and the club might decide to play it safe and go ahead and DL him. Kelby Tomlinson filled in at second base Monday.

  • Kipnis (hamstring) comes off bench
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) went 0-for-2 after coming off the bench Sunday against the Rays.

    Advice: Kipnis missed his third straight start Sunday due to a minor right hamstring injury, but he felt well enough to pinch-hit and remain in the game at second base. It's an indication that he's close to returning to the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Aug 14, 5:11 am

  • Joe Panik passes through concussion protocol
    Joe Panik went through the concussion protocol without issue after Sunday's game.

    Advice: Panik was tagged in the head while sliding into home plate during the second game of Sunday's doubleheader and wasn't feeling great after the game, but he appears to have avoided a concussion. He's getting a scheduled off-day on Monday, but look for him to return to the lineup on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 8:12 pm

  • Joe Panik (head) to be re-evaluated on Monday
    Joe Panik (head) will be re-evaluated on Monday after taking a hard tag to the head while sliding into home plate during Sunday night's game.

    Advice: The Giants had planned to give Panik the day off on Monday anyways after appearing in both game's of Sunday's doubleheader. While he felt fine immediately after the incident and remained in the game, he wasn't feeling great afterwards and will almost certainly be checked for a concussion. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 7:55 pm

  • Cory Spangenberg clocks two homers in loss
    Cory Spangenberg went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Spangenberg gave the Padres an early 1-0 lead with his solo homer off Kenta Maeda in the first inning. He would strike again for a two-run shot in the sixth. The third baseman has picked up four extra-base hits in his last four games.

    Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the A's.

    Advice: Schoop came up with an RBI single in the first inning against Kendall Graveman. He is working on the best overall season of his big league career to date, slashing .302/.352/.540 with 25 homers and 85 RBI across 116 games. He has already tied his career-best for home runs in a season and has already set his career-best for RBI in a year. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 3:48 pm
  • Neil Walker has two hits in Brewers' debut
    Neil Walker went 2-for-4 and scored a run in his Brewers' debut on Sunday.

    Advice: Walker found himself hitting cleanup in the Brewers' lineup, which would lead to ample RBI opportunities the rest of the season if he stays near the middle of the order. The veteran second baseman is hitting .268/.341/.442 with 10 homers and 36 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 2:25 pm
  • Brandon Phillips wallops two-run homer in win
    Brandon Phillips went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

For the season as a whole, the veteran infielder is hitting .286/.329/.430 with 10 homers, 44 RBI and nine steals over the course of 105 games played. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 2:21 pm

  • Panik goes 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sat.
    Joe Panik provided his club's only run of the game by hitting a solo home run during a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: He went yard off Edwin Jackson in the first inning. The young second baseman has a fairly empty .264 batting average with seven home runs and 38 RBI in 104 games. He showed promise in his first two seasons but has taken steps backwards in the last two campaigns. He produced a .305 batting average as a rookie in 2014, bumped it up to .312 in 2015, then fell down to .239 last year. He doesn't have the power or speed to justify using him in fantasy lineups unless he can get his average back up close to .300 again. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 10:31 pm

  • Phillips homers, scores twice against Cards
    Brandon Phillips went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: Phillips hit a solo homer, his ninth of the year, off Cards starter Carlos Martinez in the fifth inning. He came up to the plate with a chance to tie the game in the ninth inning and walked to load the bases, but was later stranded at third representing the tying run. The veteran infielder, who will likely remain a topic of trade rumors until the end of the month, is hitting .285/.328/.423 through Saturday's action. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 8:35 pm

  • Brewers officially acquire Walker from Mets
    Brewers acquired 2B Neil Walker and cash from the Mets for a player to be named later.

    Advice: The deal had been expected for hours but didn't become official until after the Brewers and Mets wrapped up their games on Saturday. With Eric Sogard fading after a hot start and Jonathan Villar barely hitting over .200, the Brewers obviously felt they needed an upgrade at second base. The Mets are officially in rebuild mode after dealing Lucas Duda, Addison Reed, Jay Bruce and Walker in the span of a couple weeks. Curtis Granderson and Asdrubal Cabrera could be the next to go if New York's fire sale continues. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 8:33 pm
  • Cardinals make Jedd Gyorko a late scratch
    Jedd Gyorko (knee) was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: Gyorko had been slated to start at third base and bat sixth but now Greg Garcia will occupy the hot corner for St. Louis. Apparently he's dealing with a case of right knee irritation. Gyorko got off to a booming start this year but has struggled to a dismal .176 average since the All-Star break. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 3:01 pm

  • Brewers to acquire Neil Walker from Mets
    Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports the Brewers are "close" to acquiring Neil Walker from the Mets.

    Advice: Per reports, the Mets are getting a player to be named later. Walker was scratched from Saturday's game against the Phillies, though an official announcement isn't expected until later tonight. The Mets had a deal in place to trade Walker to the Yankees on July 31, but the Bombers suspiciously backed out due to medical concerns. Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes will be candidates to replace Walker at second base in New York while Walker figures to supplant Eric Sogard and Jonathan Villar as the Brewers' primary second baseman down the stretch. To complete the deal, the Mets will reportedly eat at least some portion of Walker's remaining $5 million salary. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 2:54 pm
  • Jason Kipnis (hamstring) could return Sunday
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Jason Kipnis (hamstring) could return to the lineup as soon as Sunday.

    Advice: Kipnis aggravated a pre-existing hamstring injury on Thursday night but it's not considered a long-term issue. He'll be available off the bench on Saturday and should be back in there for Sunday's series finale against the Rays. Jose Ramirez has been spelling him at second base. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 1:15 pm

  • Rangers claim Phil Gosselin off of waivers
    Rangers claimed INF/OF Phil Gosselin off of waivers from the Pirates.

    Advice: He'll report to Triple-A Round Rock for the Rangers. He became expendable for the Pirates with the addition of Sean Rodriguez last week. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 12:24 pm
  • Jason Kipnis remains out of Indians' lineup
    Jason Kipnis (hamstring) remains out of the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Kipnis is still considered day-to-day with tightness in his right hamstring. It doesn't appear as though he'll require a trip to the disabled list, though that could change if he doesn't improve in the next few days. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 11:27 am

  • Red Sox place Dustin Pedroia back on DL
    Red Sox placed 2B Dustin Pedroia on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 9, with left knee inflammation.

    Advice: Pedroia has been battling the knee injury since late July. Eduardo Nunez is expected to see the bulk of the action at second base while he's out with Rafael Devers handling third base. Rotoworld.com Aug 12, 8:11 am

  • Jonathan Schoop sets new career high in RBI
    Jonathan Schoop finished 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Friday's game in Oakland.

    Advice: Schoop is up to 84 RBI, besting his career high of 82 set just last season. The All-Star from Curacao is on pace for triple-digit RBI and he is slashing .300/.349/.543. The middle infielder has emerged as one of the most dangerous hitters on the Baltimore roster. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 11:51 pm
  • Marwin Gonzalez hits RBI single vs. Rangers
    Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: The Astros fell behind 6-0 before finally trying to make a game of things via a four-run eighth inning. Gonzalez would hit an RBI double in that frame, but the Astros did not score in any other inning as they fell by a 6-4 final. Tough result aside, Gonzalez continues to have himself a charmed 2017 season. He is hitting .314/.391/.571 on the year with 20 homers and 68 RBI in 95 games played. He has collected doubles in each of his last two games. Rotoworld.com Aug 11, 9:01 pm
